Starbucks Backs Off On Their Race Together Campaign After Getting Major Backlash

| Filed under: PolitikBusiness Blitz

Starbucks is scrapping part of their Race Together campaign

This is NOT the result they wanted.

Starbucks recently launched the Race Together campaign to try to get the coffee-drinking public talking about racial issues, and it didn't go over so well.

After just one week, the coffee giant is scrapping the plan altogether… well, almost.

While "Race Together" will no longer be written on the cups, Starbucks is still going to hold forum discussions to encourage a broader conversation about race.

They will also co-produce sections of USA Today and are making an effort to place more of their franchises in communities where the population is largely minorities.

However, the execs at Starbucks maintain that their changes are NOT because of the criticism they have received; it's just something that they're doing.

What do U think of this newest move???

The coffee giant is about to unveil a delivery system in two of its largest markets; Seattle and New York City.

In the second half of 2014, Starbucks' hometown as well as the Empire State Building locations will allow customers to use their app to get their treats delivered, but we're sure most of their target audience already has that downloaded anyway!

Currently, the app allows users throughout the entire Pacific Northwest to place their orders ahead of time, but this new service will allow you to be even lazier!

Madonna is number one!

Well, that is to say, she sold the most albums. But unfortunately for Her Madgesty, the Billboard 200 is now going by a slightly different metric for its album ranking.

Now they're looking at what's called multi-metric consumption.

That means for the album chart, they're also adding in single purchases that add up to a full album, even if they're purchased by several different people.

So according to Billboard, even though Rebel Heart sold the most copies — 116,000 — its final number including track equivalent album sales is about 121,000.

Not bad at all, but the new ranking is giving a different album the official number one spot:
